"A traffic stop becomes unlawful if prolonged beyond the time in fact needed to complete all traffic-based inquiries," Ginsburg said.

again you're wrong. This sets the precedent that the stop cannot take longer than a normal traffic stop. You can subpoena the records for normal traffic stops not involving dog sniffing and if this one took longer, you have grounds for suing for unlawful detention and or wrongful arrest.
They could find 100 lbs of coke in your tires and it would be thrown out. So the purposes of doing the search which is really just power mongering because you DARED to declare your rights to the all powerful leos will be moot and after the first couple of lawsuits, police forces will stop allowing their officers to do so. Either that, or they'll start sending drug sniffing dogs to every traffic sstop lol...
